    Significant with the increasing expense of fossil fuel and its depletion, and the impacts emission gases from petrol vehicles are having on our atmosphere, an alternative was needed. The design and fabrication of prototype battery electric vehicles is winding up progressively especially three wheel one. Three wheeled battery electric vehicles need the most ideal design conceivable to minimize the extent of energy necessary to power the vehicle. One of the paybacks of an incorporated design is a lighter vehicle, with high efficiency as a design objective focus. The lighter the vehicle, the lesser amount of energy it will necessitate to drive, therefore less greenhouse emissions. Three-wheel electric vehicle services are: university campus, clubs, hospitals, airports, residential compounds, villas, car and goods towing, trailer to haul the trash, remote area transportation etc. This work entails for investigation, design and building of a prototype three-wheeled battery drive electric vehicle with entire simple control system. A three-wheeled battery electric vehicle as an electric mobility is being developed and tested at Suez Canal University (Egypt) and Sepang International Circuit (Malaysia). The design of the three-wheeled battery electric vehicle must have many favorable characteristics such as low mass and good aerodynamics. The vehicle designed with one seat to be thrusted by brushed motor attached on the rear wheel and powered by 48V Lithium-ion battery. The numerical study is performed by MATLAB Simulink 2017 modeling and the results recorded 140km/kWh with regenerative braking system. The fabricated three-wheel battery electric vehicle total weight is 55kg. Its tested in different tracks, many attempts, with best result 100km/kWh. Vehicle maximum speed is 60km/h and the maximum efficiency is 70% at 25km/h.

    A new boat driving system is developed by loading an FCV or an EV onto an electric-propulsion boat. The electric-propulsion boat can be driven by means of batteries. This new method resulted in dramatically increasing the amount of loaded electric energy; with prior and existing batteries the amount of electric energy had been inadequate. It has made it possible, for instance, to produce excellent new performance and convenience in cruising distance and sail-speed. A boat is built for substantial experiments during this research. The research was conducted with the prototype boat in order to accomplish such goals as the reduction of CO2 emission and oil consumption. A Toyota “Mirai” fuel cell commercial vehicle, FCV, on board the hybrid boat is used to prove the usefulness of an FC system and a hydrogen tank as an electric generator. It is expected that the effective spread of a hydrogen system for marine transportation in the early 21st century might be provided by such a simplified way of an FCV as a hydrogen generator. We are hoping to provide the shipping circle with a new means of navigation for vessels in this century and to contribute to the country’s prosperity.
